The Lyrics

It's like 2020 was hanging around in...wherever future years hang around, heard all the stuff about 2016 being the worst year ever in modern times and then turned to 2021 and said, "HOLD MY @#$%ING BEER!" Normally, I'd pick a song from a musical or, at best, a song where copyright doesn't matter (just like jibjab did) for a year-end recap. But...just from the opening line alone, THIS song has all the earmarks of a tribute to this horrible, terrible, no-good, very bad year! Share and it's prolly the ONLY thing to "enjoy" about this year!
Twenty-twenty has a few hours to go
This year was over-rated
Already hell but down we go-o-o
This year was over-rated
Trump survived impeachment
(But) not Election Day
Biden's taking over
But Repubs still have sway
They bum-rushed in a justice
Would they do that today?
Oh no oh oh oh ohhhhh

In twenty-twenty, COVID-19 took control
This year was over-rated
Some frickin' "flu"; it's worse by butt-loads
This year was over-rated
Old people in ICUs
Young'uns feeling warm
Hurry with the vaccine
Before there's more alarm
For now, stay six feet away
Or I will do you harm
Oh no oh oh oh ohhhhh

In twenty-twenty, Olympic Games were no-go
This year was over-rated
Brexit is done; where does UK go?
This year was over-rated
George Floyd's death brings us outrage
Black Lives Matter, too
NASA's back in space thanks
To Musk and Dragon 2
Drones nearly starts Iran war
'Canes count near thirty-two
Oh no oh oh oh ohhhhh

In twenty-twenty, Kobe was the first to go
This year was over-rated
Trebek, RBG, Yeager, oh no
This year was over-rated
Sean Connery, T'Challa
Regis and Lipton
Chuck Daniels, Ken Rogers
And Little Richard's done (LR: Good golly!)
We'll have to cross our fingers
For twenty-twenty-one
Oh no oh oh oh ohhhhh

Beirut booming; Depression looming
This year was over-rated
Cal, Aus flaming; the MAGAs shaming
This year was over-rated
Death in protests and "killer hornets"
This year was over-rated
We had luck off; this year can f*** off!
This year was over-rated!!
I'd say let's have a SANE 2021...but I know better. Let's just make it a SAFE 2021, OK?
